Cat Person and Other Stories (Paperback)

£8.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

These are stories of women's lives now. They also happen to be horror stories. In some, women endure the horror. In others, they inflict it.


Here are women at work, at home, on dates, at the doctor's, with their families and with their friends. Here are women grappling with desire, punishment, guilt and anger. These are stories to make you feel fascinated but repelled, scared but delighted, revolted but aroused.

Staff Choice

If you’re looking for a new author proving ground at the forefront of great fiction writing, stop.

Including and barging past the viral hit Cat Person, Kristen Roupenian’s debut collection of shorts straddles and combines exquisite stories of real-world life and love with a shot of the weird, of mind-bending metaphysical horror. Devastating, twisted, lascivious, addictive—these are monstrous and macabre tales, from a pre-eminently skilled writer, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.
